God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them. Hebrews 6:10

 

Please note that the money from all purchases made at the Glenwood concession stand this Friday night will be donated to purchase much needed supplies for those affected by Hurricane Michael!  Plan on having dinner with us at the Gator Pit Friday night as we cheer on the Gators!

 

Glenwood Gives

Glenwood Family,

As you all know, Hurricane Michael recently made landfall on the Panhandle and leveled everything in its path. This terrible storm has left thousands of people without the basic things they need to survive each day; such as water, batteries, flashlights, and basic canned goods. The Glenwood family has a heart for giving and always goes above and beyond when asked.

We’d like to take this opportunity to ask for your help in providing support for the victims of Hurricane Michael in Florida. Different grade levels are being asked to bring different supplies to donate. We would LOVE to have 100% participation from every Family at Glenwood! These items will be delivered to the Florida Red Cross on the weekend of November 3rd by Mrs. Kallie Blackshear and her father, Pastor Derrick Millirons. Donations can be made to the following contacts:

Lower School Donations - Mrs. Kallie Blackshear - kblackshear1@glenwoodgators.com

Upper School Donations - Mrs. Christen Wilbourn - cwilbourn@glenwoodgators.com

Check out our Facebook page for a list of suggested donation items:  https://www.facebook.com/HomeoftheGlenwoodGators/

We thank you for your generous support! Go Gators!
